Abstract Details


To highlight the difficulties in calculation of toric intraocular lenses in eyes with previous RK


Ophthalmos Research and Therapeutic Institute, Athens


Case report. Recalculation of a toric intraocular lens was performed after the initial miscalculation that resulted in a big refractive surprise 6 weeks post surgery. Use of preoperative keratometric readings rather than the postoperative ones was preferred


IOL recalculation based on the preoperative rather than the postoperative K readings in view of the recent surgery gave an accurate result


Toric IOL implantation in eyes with previous RK can be very challenging. In case of lens exchange use of correct keratometric readings is crucial FINANCIAL DISCLOUSRE: NONE
